Partners in art and petting

Posted by PicasaNow this is the close up photo I was looking for!
Miss Lucy earns her keep, huh? And gets petted
at the same time.

Helping at the easel

Posted by PicasaA friend of mine has been coming to paint her
large work in my studio. This is fun for me to have
company while I work! But it is more fun for Lucy
who is getting lap time. I'd call my friend an art

VERY smart cat!

Posted by PicasaI had to post this. Isn't it funny? My cat Lucy is aligning herself
with my new arrangement of animals for my students to draw.
Previously, they were all mixed in with the other still life stuff.
Only now, with Lucy there, I can't really call it still life now can I?

Me and my Dad

Posted by PicasaThis is a portrait of my Dad at thirteen. Can you guess the
artist? It was done as a logo for the Hohner Harmonica company
in the U.S. in the early 1920s.

Garden Gate


This is my neighbor's garden in full summer. Oil on canvas. 8 x 10.
So much fun to do it. Work out the tones/values and the pops of color!

Girl's Night Out

Posted by Picasa

This is my latest oil painting. It is 23" x 29". While the frame is a bit askew in the photo, you can see the painting just fine! I am happy with the color of the frame choice. It really did what the painting needed to make it pop! Let me know how you like it please!

Where have I been?

I see I'd better get busy and post new work! I have been doing some and just have been having a wonderful busy time this summer. But now it's September, no more excuses! Stay tuned!
